ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Following the surprising election of Donald Trump as our next president, Second District Congressman Sanford Bishop said he is ready to go back to Washington, and work for South Georgians.

Bishop, who has served almost a quarter century, was re-elected for a 13th term, but now the Democrat will have to deal with a Republican President, House, and Senate.

Bishop said one of his main goals is to protect South Georgia's military bases and their many jobs.

"We are always concerned about our national security and our domestic security.  We want to make sure that the people in our communities are safe at home.  And that our country is safe from terrorism abroad," Bishop said.

Bishop said he hopes leaders in Washington can focus on common goals instead of their differences.
